Epic Bars Ditch The Whey, Go All-Meat Instead

epic-bar

If you’re the kind of person who’s going to snack on protein bars between meals, you might be getting sick of the tasteless sludge that most of them are made from. Usually containing a mix of whey powder alongside other stabilizers meant to camouflage their questionable taste, modern bars have hardly any recognizable ingredients in them. But Epic bars are different. Made from 100% grass fed animals, they simply trade whey proteins for actual meat fibers, alongside a few other natural ingredients. They are low sugar, gluten-free, and Paleo-friendly snacks with flavours like “Bison Bacon Cranberry, Turkey Almond Cranberry, Beef Habanero Cherry, and Lamb Currant Mint.” We’re not sure whether they taste good, but we like to imagine them as “jerky mixed with stuff”, and frankly that sounds appealing. It’s $21 for a pack of 6.

This Is How You’re Supposed To Hold Your Burger

burger-holding

Burgers, along with pizza, are quite probably the most versatile (and satisfying!) food items ever invented. But a burger can be challenging to eat if you’re doing it wrong. Tired of ending up with half the bottom bun contents being spilled while eating, producers at the Japanese TV show “Honma Dekka!? hired experts in fluid mechanics, engineering, and dentistry to determine the best way to hold a burger so that you don’t end up wearing most of it after one bite.” The results of their “research”? Well, hold your burger with three fingers on the top bun, and two on the bottom. Your thumb and pinky finger will serve to hold the bottom bun in place, while the top three fingers… prevent the top bun from flying away?

This editor prefers to up the ante and use three fingers on the bottom and two on top. This way the burger is carefully cradled and the toppings don’t even try to escape from the sides. One could even argue for a 4-1 configuration, but that may be living life too dangerously for some.

Alternatively, one can try the daring one-handed 3-2 hold, so as to free one hand for fry retrieval, but that too may require excessive amounts of coordination and dexterity.
